Default Scrapbook Tips

Add quotes to your pages. It could be a funny joke that was told at a family gathering that has everyone laughing in a picture. It could be the baby's first words. It could be vows stated at a wedding. All of these quotes need to be remembered just as much as the images.

Have fun with borders around your images and trinkets. Use fun specialty scissors and fancy papers. These will create some mats around the image, making it stand out from the rest of the page.

You don't have to spend loads of money in order to make a fabulous scrapbook. For example - to make a Christmas page in your scrapbook use "scraps" of wrapping paper as the background and package labels and holiday themed stamps as little accents around your images.

Throw a scrapbooking party with your friends. Pool together all of your supplies and tools. You know you'll each have something the other person does not have. It's a great way to be creative, share ideas, spend time together and save money.

The Internet is a great place to find inspiration and ideas for pages. It is also a great place to find free fonts, clip art and templates to use while scrapbooking.

Add a personal touch to your scrapbook pages by journaling. Tell the story of what is happening in the pictures - and don't just list the people and location.

Make sure you are using acid-free products while scrapbooking. Using acid-free products means that your pictures will not deteriorate or fade and they will be preserved for years to come.

When you're creating a page, choose everything you want to put on the page to tell a story. Lay everything out - without adhering anything - and take a quick picture of it. Repeat this a couple more times - changing some of the things on the pages, or the order of the pictures. After you've done a few layouts, look at the pictures you took of them and choose your absolute favorite. There is nothing worse than finishing a page only to realize you don't like the layout, or realizing you have forgotten something.

Don't forget to add memorabilia to your pages. These can be things such as letters, awards, programs, tickets, etc. that will help tell the story of the pictures.

Set goals for your scrap booking projects. For example if you really want to share your memories of the most recent Christmas, then set a goal to have it done by Valentines Day. Don’t forget to be realistic in your goals. If you are very busy then give yourself a little longer to get it all done.

Pick a scrapbook size that is reasonable for both the event you are scrap booking and your ability. You don’t want a scrapbook that is to large and you are struggling to fill it up, and you don’t want one that is too small that you do not have enough space. Try to find a version that allows you to add or take out pages.
